This recipe comes from a cookbook called Cooking for Today Simple Chinese Recipes. The recipe says that you can use pork in place of chicken and to use Chinese egg noodles. I also add more green beans and have never used the chili sauce.
- 8 ounces angel hair pasta
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 ounces green beans, fresh
- 8 ounces chicken, cooked
- 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon chinese rice wine or 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- 2 green onions, shredded (sort of julienned)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sesame oil
- chili sauce (optional)
- Cook noodles according to directions. Drain and toss with 1 T of the oil.
- Slice meat into thin shreds.
- Trim green beans and cut into bit size pieces.
- Heat 3 T of oil in a preheated wok or skillet. Add the noodles and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes with 1 T soy sauce. Remove to a serving dish and keep warm.
- Heat remaining oil and stir-fry beans and meat for about 2 minutes. Add sugar, wine, remaining soy sauce and half of green onions. Blend the meat mixture well and pour on top of noodles. Sprinkle with sesame oil and remaining green onions. Serve hot or cold with optional chili sauce.
Very simple but delicious recipe. You can change it up by using pork instead of chicken, or throw in julienned carrots, green beans or any combination of veggies you like. It's very good hot, but I like it even more as a cold dish.
As I am on a budget, I occasionally replace chicken mince with beef mince, just make sure I drain off the fat. Also I sometimes add home-brand 2 minute noodles instead, or broken home-brand vermicelli . Feeds a family of 4 easlily for undr $10.00, and reasonable health
Terrific! I don't care for onions so left them out, and used regular soy sauce as that's what I had on hand. Using leftover chicken this came together so quickly and was a really great meal - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009
